Maintenance and engineering managers know they will never find relief from the pressure to reduce operating costs, save energy, improve sustainability, and achieve fast payback on maintenance projects in institutional and commercial facilities.

Lighting is still the low hanging fruit of energy savings. All four key components of a lighting system — lamps and light sources, luminaires, ballasts, and controls — are rapidly improving technologies that managers and their technicians can use to prevent energy waste related to lighting. Most facilities still have old, outdated lighting systems, but even a well-maintained lighting system offers great opportunities for upgrades that save energy and money.
